As the clouds come rolling in for their usual six month winter boogie, I find myself reaching for the more soulful beats of funk music than anything else. Well, my search is over: kudos to Mr. Cee-Lo Green for releasing this seasons’ finest funk with his latest album, The Lady Killer.
This album, buoyed by the Internet success of its first single, “Forget You” promises a soulful thrill ride that’ll keep you steamy in this biting November chill.
You’ve probably heard Mr. Green’s voice before: His 2006 collaboration with Dangermouse gave us Gnarles Barkley and that little-known hit, “Crazy.” The video for that super-single featured some of the most interesting visuals I’ve seen, mimicking a rainbow-hued Rorschach like nobody’s business.

If you like the Gorillaz or The Neptunes, Mark Ronson & the Business Intl.’s upcoming release Record Collection is perfect for you, pumpkin!

The videos for Record Collection’s singles certainly match the sound. Featuring 80’s special effects, a washed out, vintage color scheme and the most rockin’ romper this side of 1985, “Bang Bang Bang” is totally worth a peep:
